Pretty solid pickup. Vintage Gillis-type move, bringing in a guy with solid past performances and connections to the team/players for a very minimal outlay of assets. Seeing Gaustad go for a 1st rounder, when we got a fairly similar sort of role player for a pair of 4ths and a contract dump...solid value. He should be good for us come playoffs.
But it feels like this was a move straight back to a 'conventional' checking 3rd line, and Pahlsson isn't going to provide a whole ton of the depth scoring we so badly lacked through much of last years playoffs.
